It was directed by Joseph Kahn , who previously worked with Spears on the music video for her single " Stronger ". Brad Rushing was the cinematographer. Spears first approached Kahn with a story sketch of a secret agent out for revenge against an ex-lover, for which Kahn created a treatment.
Her concept was almost fully formed and detailed, exemplifying the scene in which she drops a drink on the passenger's lap. Spears said she wanted to join the mile high club and be a stewardess that kissed a man in the bathroom.
Kahn suggested making him a fat man, so the "common man" would feel represented. Spears also told him about a scene in which she would be naked and covered in diamonds. Kahn stated he was "not sure what I was thinking about when she told me about that scene, maybe those intros to James Bond movies, but every video needs an iconic image to remember, and that's it.
After the treatment was finished, Kahn proceeded to cast his friends and acquaintances, as in most of his projects. The plane passenger on whom Spears drops a drink was played by his long-time casting director, while the fat man in the bathroom was played by the casting director's assistant.
Spears's boyfriend is played by Martin Henderson , who starred in Kahn's directorial debut Torque. For the naked scenes, Spears cleared the set, leaving only Kahn, Blackburn, and Rushing with her to shoot the sequence. Spears also shot scenes in which she had to dance through a hallway of imaginary lasers in front of a green screen , something that Kahn deemed as "incredible to watch".

He explained, "the trick was to make it look pop at the same time" and told Henderson, "Would you like to be kissed by Britney Spears? According to Kahn, the hint of a smile that appears on Henderson's face before Spears pours the poison into his mouth was what managed to get the shot past the censors. Although Spears was at first going to be involved in the editing process with Blackburn, she did not contact Kahn after the media scandal over her wedding in Las Vegas.
The music video began with an open shot of an airplane flying and preceded by three menacing dark birds, referencing the works of Hong Kong director John Woo. After serving some of the passengers, she "accidentally" spills a drink into the lap of a seated male passenger; later beckoning the middle-aged, overweight, bespectacled male passenger to the bathroom and seduces him.

This scene is followed by scenes of Spears wearing a black superheroine outfit and black hair. She scales a building and enters an apartment, where her boyfriend Henderson is waiting.
She kisses him just before pouring the poison into his mouth, killing him. Spears kisses him again and flies from the window balcony. She appears back on the plane as the flight attendant and winks to the camera.
